You might remember the attempt BMW made back in 2009 to build the first Mini E. They threw a battery pack into the back seat and produced a few hundred to try out. This test served a great purpose in showing the company how people expected to use their electric cars.
Now, BMW is at it again. The all-electric Mini will be making its way back into the lineup as one of the newest future electric cars. While there are a lot of vague details being circulated, we do have to wonder if the debut will coincide with the arrival of Samsung’s 125-Ah battery cells. These are also planning to hit the market in 2019 and they could offer a range of 200 miles or more on a single charge for the Mini Cooper.
Aside from the Mini E, you’ll also want to be on the lookout for a hybrid version of the Mini Countryman to show up as well.
